Fresh Hope – 31st October 2020

Psalm 1 says “Blessed is the man who does not walk in step with the wicked, or stand in the way of sinners, or sit in the seat of mockers. But whose delight is in the law of the Lord and on it he meditates it day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, who yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.”

We all like the last bit “and whatever he does prospers.” Yes! We would all like that. Okay – so let’s take note then…

It’s important where you walk and who you walk with. It’s important where you stand and where you sit. They are all actions.

Walk is an action and walking in wicked ways is your choice. Relationships are of the utmost importance. Who you spend time with will either help or hinder you. 

Stand Speaks to me of “who do you stand with, and what do you stand for?”

Now more than ever, it’s vital we stand for the right things. 

Sit is a definite choice.  You can go to someone’s house, but you will only sit down if you’re comfortable.  Where are you sitting today my friend and what are you comfortable with?
Our actions and choices will determine whether we are blessed and prosperous. That’s God’s word.  It’s always true.   

“But his delight is in God’s word, he meditates on it day and night.” Wow! You can only meditate on something if it’s in there to meditate on. So read it and ponder on it. Read it and believe it.  Read it and declare it.  Read it and love it. 

You want the receipe for being blessed? Simple, read Psalm 1.

You’ll be fresh and green, and when everything around you maybe withering, you won’t be.  That’s beautiful. That’s God.
